Jesus Is Life! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 27th

(He’s The Resurrection And The Life)

TO THE BIBLE: John 14:6
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.””

“What’s the origin of life? How did mankind come into being?” the Modern Science professor asked his classroom of students. Perplexed by his abrupt questioning, no student made any attempt to answer except Cyril, a teenager known for his love of Jesus.

“Jesus Christ—the Word of God—is the true origin of life, and He brought man into being, sir. If you’d read John 1:1-12, you’ll see that what I said is true.”

Knowing the origin of life is one of science’s most perplexing mysteries. No one has ever created life. The very source or substance of life hasn’t been known to man.

But 1 John 1:2 KJV tells us something so profound; it says, “…life was manifested, and we have seen it….” This means life came out of obscurity and was shown to us.

How? Who or what did John and the people of his day see that they called life? It was Jesus! He is life personified. Hallelujah!

Imagine that you saw someone or something that says to you, “I’m life; I’m responsible for your existence.” What would you think? Well, it happened. That’s what we read in our opening verse. Jesus said, “…I am the way, the truth, and the life….” Who could ever dare say such a thing?

Jesus proved His claim: A man named Lazarus was dead and buried for four days, and they sent for Jesus. When Jesus got there, He said to Martha, Lazarus’ sister, “…I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live” (John 11:25).

Moments later, Jesus stood by the grave of Lazarus and “…cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”” (John 11:43). To the utter bewilderment of the people gathered, Lazarus came back to life! Hallelujah!

Jesus is indeed the resurrection and the life. God gave Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as God has given Him (John 17:2).

This covers everything that He came to do; it’s the biggest of them all: He came to give us life. You received that life and became a partaker of the divine nature when you were born again. Glory to God!

I have the very life and nature of God in me, because I’m born again. This God-life makes me impregnable, causing me to walk in victory, glory, dominion and excellence always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
